You're probably talking about the Fabiano Scherner fight that they re-showed last night. I don't really think that highly of scherner, even though he has a black belt. His takedowns were sloppy and his strikes were even worse.

Vera v Assuerio Silva should definitely have been a harder match than Scherner, but the fact that he ended it so quickly showed that he's come a long way.

Vera is definitely getting better, but he's still not first in line for a title shot, even after Arlovski. I think that Vera has a good future, but he's young so he should wait. He's also a little bit small for a heavyweight, maybe he should drop down to lightheavyweights. (he did call out the Iceman... what an idiot!)
